Updated: corrected reference to the L9 and Exhibit's LTE capabilities.

MetroPCS today announced that it has initiated sales of HSPA+ based smartphones in its retail stores. Earlier this week, MetroPCS began accepting unlocked HSPA+ phones in several markets, including Boston, Hartford, Las Vegas, and Dallas, and today announced that it is selling the LG L9 and Samsung Galaxy Exhibit as the first two HSPA+ phones. The company is working to switch its CDMA-based customers over to GSM-based devices, which run on T-Mobile's network rather that MetroPCS' as it integrates the two. MetroPCS will begin selling an HSPA+ and LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 17. The company did not say when it expects to broaden the availability of these first HSPA+ phones and the BYOD service beyond the first few markets.
